I switched from the beginner yoga DVD to the next one entitled Yoga for the Inflexible Person. I've only done one of the routines, but I was able to do all the moves (some modified, of course) and finished the 30 minutes with a minor problem - sweaty feet. I've tried keeping my socks on during yoga and slid too much on the mat. I don't slide with sweaty feet, but it is kind of gross. I normally don't have this problem, so I think it is just my feet reacting to the mat material. Maybe these would help?
I went to WW Tuesday for my February weigh-in and also to purchase a couple of the new three month trackers. I weighed in mid-day at 132.8 which was a loss of .6 from my January weigh-in.
My eye problems are not improving. I tried leaving off dairy for a month or so with no improvement. I have been without caffeine now for more than two months and it has not helped my eyes either. I'm considering going back to regular coffee since I read that decaf coffee is more likely to cause problems with one's stomach. I'm still deciding. I'm also going to seek out another eye doctor very soon.
I went to bed Tuesday evening thinking that I was definitely going to stop my blog because of my eye issues. The next morning I was once again undecided. Maybe, I will take a two week break and see if my eyes improve. I can be having a fairly good eye day and a few minutes on the computer will start the problems. I can be having a fairly bad eye day and a few minutes on the computer will make the problems worse. I think that even more than not writing, I will miss reading my favorite bloggers.
I'm still trying to settle on a salad dressing that I like and will use consistently which does not have 19 or 20 weird ingredients. Sometimes I use a teaspoon of grape seed oil with two teaspoons of balsamic vinegar but other times I don't want to bother and will go to the fridge and get the Ken's Steakhouse lite Caesar dressing and use that. I have also just splashed on a teaspoon or two of straight balsamic vinegar which is a very boring salad in my opinion. PlumPetals suggested mixing mustard with the balsamic vinegar but I have not done that yet. It is next on my list for sure.
When we went grocery shopping last Saturday, we got a new salad dressing which was Ken's Steak House lite poppy seed dressing. It was creamy and we thought we would like it. When I got it out to put on the salads, I tasted it and it was so sweet I could not believe it and wasn't about to put it on my salad -- low calorie or not. Really, really nasty! The first ingredient was vinegar and the second ingredient was high fructose corn syrup. Yep, I didn't take the time to read the label which is so important. My husband said he would try it if I thinned it down so I added a little skim milk to it and he ate it. After dinner, I threw the salad dressing in the garbage because that is what it was.
I am flying back to Tucson on Sunday and am looking forward to nicer weather. I have a few yoga classes left on an old Groupon that will run out the end of the month and I am going to take advantage of those.
Happy weekend to all.
